Farm to Table
Travel to the source of your food and close out the summer harvest season at our first Farm to Table event where we will meet, greet, eat, and learn.
As heard on STL TV and KTRS!
The event takes place at Urban Harvest STL's downtown community garden and urban farm (urbanharveststl.org) located just north of the City Museum with amazing views of the city skyline. A portion of all proceeds will support the farm in its efforts to transform underutilized inner city spaces into productive food-based platforms, including the FOOD ROOF farm, a rooftop farm being starting construction downtown this fall, opening in Spring of 2014!
Three renowned St. Louis chefs will be providing our locally-produced feast for the evening alongside the farmers they work with. Each chef will provide a tasting trio based on the produce, meat and dairy available that week.
